Functionality – 5/5

The Roku app serves as Roku devices companion. Its functional kit simplifies the usage of Roku TV and other Roku consoles to provide the most satisfying experience.

Once you get the Roku app to your device, you can:

  • Control your Roku devices remotely;
  • See currently popular movies and shows in What’s On section;
  • Use voice controlling to find quickly what you need;
  • Stream your favorite channels and movies on the go.

Design – 5/5

Clear design is an irreplaceable part of a well-made app, and here Roku developers succeeded too.
Easy and simple Roku app design replicates the original design of Roku devices. The app is fulfilled in black and purple colors as expected and equipped with a straightforward navigation bar.

Usability – 5/5

The Roku mobile app can serve as an alternative for the Roku remote control. The app replicates most of the Roku remote functions with some added benefits. The Roku app remote features look like a touchpad that duplicates the directional keypad control on a Roku TV or other Roku device.

If you tap the What's On button, you’ll see a selection of free, trending movies and TV shows. Choose a specific movie or TV show, and the Roku app will give you detailed information about it including a synopsis, trailer, cast information, and viewing options.

You can also follow favorite movies, series, TV shows, actors, and directors by placing them into My Feed section to get updates.

Use your voice to navigate the Roku app. Quick request for a home page, launch channels or a specific movie or TV show on Roku TVs or switch from a streaming app to the HDMI inputs.

Another Roku app exclusive feature is the ability to listen privately to your Roku channels using the smartphone's or tablet’s earphones.

To enable private listening, follow these steps:

  • Tap the headphones icon in the Roku app;
  • Confirm activation of Private Listening;
  • Plug in your earphones to your device;
  • Enjoy the option.

Cross-platform use – 5/5

The Roku apk can be downloaded and installed on most of Android and iOS devices. Get the Roku app latest version to provide its proper work. If you’re about to download the Roku app for the iOS smartphone or tablet, make sure it runs iOS 9.0 or later. For Android users, the system version depends on the device.

In-app purchases

In-app purchases and subscription for the Roku app may be required to unlock specific streaming content. Some movies or shows are available only after you pay rent, buy a subscription or pay for viewing it. If the content should be paid for, you’ll see the detailed info about the price on a movie/show page.

The Bottom Line

The Roku app is also good for managing all your Roku devices at once. Connect the app to your Roku TV, streaming stick and Roku Express and control all of them directly from your phone or tablet.

    Need a download for Roku STB as supplied by Sky NowTv which fixes their pestilential update removing developer mode. The result is we can no longer use Plex on our equipment. Need a Roku download to repair the firmware, - anybody got any ideas as to where?

    Television in your smartphone. I am fond of watching defferent movies or shows on my phone, Roku makes it possible. It's great, isn't it? By the way, users can share their videos, so, movie collection is quite big and can satisfy evebody's taste. I have already subscribed to several interesting channels, their number grows day by day. Fantastic application! Television in your smartphone. I am fond of watching defferent movies or shows on my phone, Roku makes it possible. It's great, isn't it?
